WHAT’S YOUR STREET INTELL:
My Street Intell is life and people. Watching how we tick, how we move and feel. How we are all connected. And showing that connection through my art. I am performance artist. I have such a passion for my Art. So whether theatre, film or music (rapping/singing), that’s my voice. I am in this world to speak loud, speak my truth and if others can relate possibly speak for them too. My generation has so many stories. I want to tell them all. Like wanting to ball out but you know you have to work a double in the am and rent is due. Performing from the people for the people. Right now, I’m writing music, perfecting this form of story telling. I am working on my first Mixtape and the working title is “Conversations” . Out of all the art that I’ve done to date; I’m so excited about this project. It’s personal; these are my stories, my friends stories, what we go through and how they are all so cohesive even though we are from different walks of life. Basically, it’s a story of how we do the shit we do.
I’ve been in the theatre and acting since I was the 3, my mom says since the womb. So I’d like to get back into it once my “Conversations” project is released… So stay tuned!
DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE:
Honestly, I don’t have a description for my style. I just do what feels natural. So that everyday tells a story.
